​​​Here at Leeds Trinity we're all huge fans of God's Own County, so to celebrate #YorkshireDay, we've​​​ put together a list of the 10 reasons why we love Yorkshire! 

1.      Yorkshire Puddings

We couldn't imagine Yorkshire without these delicacies! They're what drive the spirit of the Yorkshire folk, but of course, they need to be made to the strict recipe to ensure they come out perfect every time!

2.       The Yorkshire Spirit!

If there's one thing that draws people to 'God's Own C​ounty' it's the people. Nowhere else in the world will you find people that are so passionate about their culture, and it wouldn't be too surprising if you heard people chanting 'Yorkshire, Yorkshire Yorkshire!' as you walk down the street.  ​​

3.      The Countryside

Described by many as the most magnificent views in Britain, the stunning Yorkshire Dales are the county's most iconic features, from Malham Cove to Ilkley M​​oor. But, the beauty doesn't stop there, Yorkshire is also home to some of the country's best architecture such as Leeds Town Hall.

4.      Student Life

Yorkshire is a great place for students, with the Independent voting Leeds the best student city in the UK! With an amazing night life, and affordability, it's definitely the place to be!

5.      Literary History

Yorkshire is rich with historic greats - from the Bronte sisters to Ted Hughes, the county is bursting with culture and inspiration.

6.      The Music Scene

The birth place of bands like The Arctic Monkeys and The Kaiser Chiefs, as well​ as hosting world-class festivals like Live At Leeds and Leeds Festival, Yorkshire is a music lovers dream!

7.      The Yorkshire Folk

The ultimate tell-tale sign of Yorkshire is undeniably the great Yorkshire accent that everyone loves! Eee By Gum! 'by 'eck!

8.      Our Sporting Excellence

Thanks to athletes like Jessica Ennis, the Brownlee brothers and Nicola Adams, Yorkshire would of placed 12th in the 2012 Olympics if it had competed as an independent country - if that doesn't describe how many sporting heroes we produce then nothing will!

9.      Leeds

One of the UK's favourite cities is situated in Yorkshire! Leeds has some of the best shopping in Europe, as well as fantastic transport links across the UK. A city which always has something to offer – we all love Leeds!  

10.  Yorkshire Tea

Everyone in Yorkshire loves a good brew! The county widely regards its tea as a vital part of the culture and life, and we all drink it religiously!
